If you could start a business abroad to help life away from home be a little more like home what would it be?

Hey ladies. Im loving all the wonderful sharing. So the question for today is... if you could start a business abroad to help life away from home be a little more like home what would it be?

Marian D. Willis good question! the options for expats to start a business seems limitless in some countries... i like the concept of the 'tharrivalstore.com' but i would make it more affordable n bigger variety.

Kim Tae-Hee I would like to establish a community center of resources where Americans can come to get a better understanding of how to find comparable substitutes for food and other things that would help us adapt easier to the new culture. Sometimes the culture shock is a bit overwhelming!!! :D

Tiny Shim As a licensed cosmetologist I'd definitely want to open shop to take care of sisters hair. I'd also like to have an American food restaurant and classy club for the more sophisticated crowd!

Cha Jones A good Soul Food restaurant would be the BOMB! I would also like if there were more reasonable international markets with a variety of fresh food, dairy, and meats (including turkey).

Charea Johnson When I'm visiting my friends in the military on base, it feels like I'm in America. So, I'd love the opportunity to have a 'boutique' with regular size clothes! The average size in America is 14 and that's my size! And a size 10 shoe, as well! My main option is online shopping and I dislike it! My life would be easier if I had access to my size...^^

Cha Jones Charea I agree food and clothes are what I really miss about being home. I would also like to have a place where I can ship my own home goods, but I'm working up to that. :)
